    Morphix - removing some packages


    i am using morphix, the lastest version. however, after installing it on my hardisk i found out that there are some packages that aren't relevant to me and therefore, i'd like to remove them. unfortunatelly, i don't know how to do this, because it doesn't understand the rpm command. does anybody know what i should do or give me a good guide about this?

    Do a "man rpm" and check out the -q and -R switches. The -q switch tells rpm to 'query' the package you name for info. Additional switches tell rpm what info to look for. -R tells it to query the named package for a list of other packages that depend on it.

    One you have the list of other packages that depend on the one you are contemplating removing you can decide if you want to remove it or not. Bear in mind, its like pulling on a thread hanging from a garment...
